My mum used to make this cake when i was growing up and it was her mums recipe. i loved coming home from school to find a big slab of potato cake on the bench. i would pinch bits of  the crunchy sugar top off whild she wasnt looking. YUUUMMM    It really is delicious

This recipe fed a family of 8 (yes 6 kids) so you might want to halve the recipe. i promise it will get eaten though.
